The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’as Abubakar, warned that the rising insecurity in the country may consume the nation if urgent care is not taken by the federal government.

The spiritual leader of Northern Nigeria said, “insecurity is a serious issue that is facing us now in Nigeria. It has touched everybody irrespective of location in the country.

He noted that Just three days ago (Wednesday) 20 innocent persons were drowned in the Sokoto community while running away from bandits. Unfortunately, many of these killings are unreported or documented.

“The fact that we have been talking about this insecurity should be enough fact for all of us to wake up and take action either individually or collectively. We need to come together and face these enemies that have decided to unleash terror on our people. If not, this insecurity will consume all of us in no distant time, because we have chosen to sit and blame one another instead of taking steps and actions that would tame the menace. Blame games will never help anybody.

He stressed that “The earlier we know the truth about these insecurity issues, the better for us. Poverty and unemployment are some of the big factors that had fueled this. There are thousands of youths who are hanging around doing nothing, hence they had become tools in the hands of evil people.

“As religious leaders, we have a lot to do and we would do our best to help the government tackle these issues. The campaign would soon start ahead of the 2023 general elections, we need to hold political office seekers to account. They should explain to us their plans and agenda for the masses. Nigeria is too much and great to be held down by some set to people who have and making unrealistic demands.”
